Introduction

The aim of the Art department is to provide an environment where students are encouraged to explore and develop a personal style and enjoy the process of creative expression.

Junior Art

In year 7/8 students focus on fundamentals such as tone and colour while building skills in the areas of painting, drawing and printmaking. Students make projects that explore a range of approaches such as technical and observation drawing as well as designing imaginative pieces.

Senior Art

In year 9/10 students continue to work in the same areas while focusing on artists and art movements, such as Expressionism, Surrealism and Pop Art, as starting points. This provides inspiration and stimulus for students to develop their own ideas based on a particular style. It also starts to build an understanding of art movements for students who continue Art in VCE.

VCE Art & Studio Art

Art and Studio Art are offered in VCE. Studio Art is split into two streams: Painting & Drawing and Photography, which allows students to select their area of interest. In both Art and Studio Art students explore and develop work based on a topic of their choice. Through ongoing discussion and support students investigate and refine work in a folio to create a series of finished artworks.

Arts Night

Arts night occurs twice a year and includes visual art, dance, drama and music. This provides an opportunity for students to display their work at the end of each semester. All students from year 7-12 have artwork on display for Arts night. Students, parents and friends are invited to view the artwork and enjoy performances.
